Our Story

Dr. Laurie Jones is a pediatrician in Phoenix, Arizona and identified physician women as being a high risk group to not meet their breastfeeding goals. In 2009 she created Dr. MILK as a local support group and then added an online community through Facebook in 2010.

Through local chapters and a robust online community we are changing this narrative and helping women meet and even exceed their goals!

Our Members

  • Physicians who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or expressing breast milk for their children.
  • Physicians who want to learn more about breastfeeding to help their patients.
  • Physician mothers who have experience breastfeeding and expressing breast milk for their children.

About Us


We are excited to reintroduce the “BAD ADVICE” letter!

Did you hear about another doctor giving advice that is not evidence based and hurts the breastfeeding relationship? Do you know of someone who got turned away from their mammogram because they were breastfeeding? Did a nurse practitioner tell someone they can’t breastfeed while on amoxicillin?

We want to help educate these medical professionals! Tell us more at this link and we’ll send them an anonymous letter and some resources to learn better, do better!

Physician mothers bring home the bacon AND the milk!!!
